Disk data storage expert witness candidates typically have an advanced degree and expertise in electrical engineering, computer science, materials science, and/or hardware engineering. Disk storage refers to devices whereby data is recorded and stored via electronic, magnetic, optical, or mechanical changes to surface layer rotating disks. Common devices include the hard disk drive (HDD), the floppy disk drive (FDD), and optical disc drives (ODD).
A disk data storage expert witness often provides expertise in intellectual property matters such as a patent litigation or a trade secret dispute. A computer forensics expert can determine if there is evidence to reveal intellectual property infringement or theft. Clients may also seek a disk data storage specialist for pre-litigation consulting work.
In a litigation support scenario, a technical expert can expect courtroom testimony, as well as other expert witness services such as depositions, expert opinion, expert testimony, a prior art search, an expert report, computer forensic analysis, claim charts, and related consulting activities.
